Amazing to see what Mother Nature can create in the sky all at one time. Here a spreading contrail rising up through altocumulus puffs is illuminated by the sun and shimmering like ice. Gone in minutes … but remembered.
Cirrus at Sunset
The glow of the setting Sun adds even more beauty to ethereal Cirrus. A soft ending to any day.
Up Close and Personal
I never met a cloud I didn’t want to spend more time with. Fascinating creatures. Window seat FL to OR.
In Plane View
A six hour flight of non-stop sky delight! Alaska airlines Orlando to PDX.
Even under cloudy skies, the petals are vibrant.
A light mist in the air following heavy rain creates a watercolor look to the fall trees. A city street becomes a Monet!
Black on Brown
Winter scenes like this one always remind me of my childhood pen and ink sketches.
They come like waves of ribbons across the sky. Rows of wings. Shape-shifting in flight. Forming first circles then lines then arches. A mesmerizing choreography only they can do. Instinctive. Fleeting. Inspiring.

Frigid morning temps are easier to take when you awake to this view.

Sunset at 27 Degrees
If you could bottle what these winter sunsets feel like, the label would read “Heaven.”
In 2009, this mighty oak was plagued with fungus and rotting branches. A group of concerned seniors rallied to save it and today it stands as you see it here. A vibrant example of the renewal of nature and the power of caring. La Conner school grounds. Washington.
